Important advice plus a range of fun activities took place during Crossroads Care’s event.

A number of charities and organisations got onboard including Alliance Homes, The Carers Trust and Parkwood Leisure to ensure people were on hand to provide advice to anyone who needed it.

To keep the younger visitors entertained there was a face painting stall, tombola and a crafts table.

Crossroads Care offered practical and emotional support to 3,000 carers last year and invited Weston Mayor Roz Willis and the town’s MP John Penrose to this week’s event.
